Question: 1978 351M/400

I removed the motor from my dads truck and junked the truck. I am looking for aftermarket parts to rebuild it within reasonable prices. Any suggestions on where to find kits? I thought about clevoring a windsor but after reading up on it I am going to stay with what I have. I want to bore it 20 over and port the heads. I also want to install larger valves and use a hydraulic cam k-kit with scorpion roller rockers. The pistons I am looking at are forged flat top. Any suggestions on who may have all in one kits for about $1000 to $1500 that have everything including crankshafts. I will buy the H bearings seperately. I can get the machining done.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
